Just found this forum while looking around for Travco pictures. I have a 1966 27' Travco I have owned since 1997 here in central Illinois. I am currently trying to start a 2nd remodel since I have had it. Lots of leaks in the roof and windows have left some serious interior damage. It was parked at a campground for almost 4 years (never thought I would have to move it) but they kicked everyone out! So amazingly I filled all fluids, got it running and drove it home! Looking forward to reading all the info on here. My wife and I purchased a new lakeside lot so it will have a new home soon.

Worked on it all day ...biggest problem is driver side trapezoid window leak. I cleaned all the drain holes, re-caulked with silicone, INSIDE screen track still fills up with water, trashing the sill and the wall. I found some 2 1/2 drip guards on line would that do it?

I have found on my '70 that if I'm parked with the nose up too high water comes in the rear of the window and down the inside wall. the drain holes I think are only toward the front. my thought is that the packing on the window bottom where it sits on the track is a bit worn even though the window is a bear to open and close still after 40 yrs.
